Amanda and I, being the über-geeks we are, decided to do a Harry Potter craft swap! We were inspired after seeing this seriously awesome hoop art! We talked a bit about our favorite characters, books, etc! Then it was off to the races!!
Amanda's favorite book is the Prisoner of Azkaban and she loves owls, so I knew I needed to make something owl related! I had always wanted to make some of these sweet soft owls and this seemed like the perfect opportunity! I made these using this tutorial (link works now!!) as a starting point! The big one is Hedwig, the fat one is Errol, and the tiny one is Pigwidgeon!
here and transfered it over to some Robert Kaufman Quilter's linen! I have now had a lot of practice with the backstitch!! :)
this tutorial but used fabric instead of paper. I couldn't very well send it empty, so I filled it up with Strawberry Jam and Lemon Drop jelly beans! Gryffindor colors of course!
etsy shop (check it out!), so I knew these would be perfect!
I had sooooo much fun making stuff for this swap! I think we're going to do it again! Can't wait to go see the movie tonight!!!!!!! :)
